Altísimos picos montañosos y cascadas, todo esto debe ser el espectacular Milford Sound, calificado por muchos de "octava maravilla del mundo natural", y este crucero le llevará a los increíbles Mitre Peak, Bowen Falls, Stirling Falls y Seal Point. Descubra la fauna marina en su hábitat natural y descubra la magia de este profundo fiordo.
Milford Sound is absolutely beautiful, we went on a wet, drizzly day which meant the mountain tops were covered by cloud but the waterfalls were amazing and the scenery still spectacular. The boat was skillfully guided right under a waterfall which was thrilling for those of us who ventured to the bow. We had another bonus, maybe because of the rain, the sandflies didn't bother us at all.
Nature at its best. Got to the pickup point a little earlier to enjoy the surrounding areas of the jetty, and then the cruise itself. What a journey it was! Gorgeous waterfalls, the beautiful ocean and we were lucky enough to encounter wild dolphins making their way out to the bay. Also saw seals basking in the sun. An extremely memorable trip.
Traveling with Southern Discoveries was great. There was an unexpected hot buffet breakfast which we were not expecting. The cruise was beautiful, some great scenery and our guide was funny and gave great commentary. There was plenty of room on the boat to find your own space to take some great photos along the way. I would highly recommend the early cruise as most of the tourist haven't arrived at Milford Sound yet, so you almost get a private tour :-
Milford Sound is absolutely stunningly breathtaking!! I would give the location 100 stars! The tour itself was great, nice boat, decent food, and some good commentary. The only reason I wouldn't give it 5 stars was because it was hard to hear the full commentary while outside on the ship perhaps speakers not loud enough and the food was just average. Other than that, it was a beautiful trip, very peaceful and the captain got right up next to the waterfalls allowing for some phenomenal pictures!
Boat trip was good.
Quality of the buffet lunch was a bit better than average but overpriced and was served during the first half hour of the cruise 11.00 and 11.30 am. Would have been much better to have had lunch towards the end of the cruise, closer to the traditional midday meal time.
